The next issue of State bonds will be on the 4th of March and will have a coupon of 0.90%, Belgium’s Debt Agency announced on Tuesday.
This is the highest rate for the bonds, which mature in 10 years, since the September 2015 issue.

The two preceding issues, in December 2017 and September 2017, had had much lower coupons: 0.50% and 0.65% respectively.

The period for purchasing the bonds will be from the 22nd of February to the 2nd of March inclusive. Payment will need to be made on Monday the 5th of March.
